    Common sense,
    so simple
    yet for some,
    so foreign and
    uncommon.

    There is no way to peace.
    Peace is the way.
    So, peace be upon you
    as I bid you adieu.

    I pray you find someone
    who speaks your heart
    and soul’s language,
    or someone committed
    to learning you,
    so you don’t waste time
    trying to translate
    all that you are.

    You are complicated,
    in the eyes of those
    that don’t understand.
    You are everything
    that is beautiful and
    simple,
    in the eyes of those
    that do understand.

    I pray that
    my definitions of love
    based on what I found in
    my grandparents -
    compassion, closeness,
    support, loyalty, humility -
    are not altered
    by the harshness
    and bitterness of life events
    and people with
    wintered hearts.

    Love can manifest as a metaphysical connection,
    binding the mind and the heart,
    it transcends the body
    and extends beyond the confines
    of time and space.
    Though it is free, leaves
    and comes as it wills, and
    manifests only if you choose to let it.
    And it lives, only if you’re attentive to it.
    For like a flower,
    if watered it blooms;
    if neglected, it wilts

    Two things that matter at the end of one’s life:

    Feeling fulfilled in purpose

    Quality of one’s relationships

    To be grateful and graceful.
    To not attach bigger meaning
    to fleeting things, for all
    is fleeting in this world.
    To enjoy the breeze on one’s face
    and the sun rays’ warmth.
    To be grateful and graceful
    as the wind gets colder
    and changes course,
    and the clouds
    submerge the sun.
    To be grateful and graceful.
    To be steady as the seasons change.

    Let things leave.

    “Perhaps we brought out
    the worst in each other.”
    Or, perhaps we
    brought out
    exactly what we both needed
    to learn and experience.
    You learned to communicate,
    and not postpone.
    I learned to be angry,
    and say no.
    I think we both learned
    to live relationships backward,
    out of order,
    be uncomfortable,
    to lose a little,
    and still be okay.

    - Much as I care for you, I’ve cared
    for your dead Orchid out of which a new seed now blooms.
